Sweet success! It was just one ripe strawberry, but it tasted good and it was from our very own garden. My 6 year old shared it with me. We probably could have left it to ripen in the sun another day or two, but we couldn’t wait.
I’m admitting my gardening ignorance here (not for the first time, either), but I had no idea that potatoes bloomed with such pretty purple flowers.
On the downside, we’ve got tiny black bugs eating up the potato leaves. We caved on the idea of organic and my dh dusted the plants with a little Sevin dust. I hope it works. I wanted the potatoes for us, not to feed the bugs. Don’t judge me because I’m not all the way green. I’m working on it. Sort of.
See those little green cherry tomatoes! I can’t wait till they turn red. We’ve also got a few small green peppers. And I used some of the lettuce to make a salad this week. It was very good and fun to harvest from the garden.
What’s growing in you backyard? And how do you keep the bugs away? Any organic methods out there that work?
